Woodland Trust Soundslides
Added on 15 February 2015 at 12:44
In 2014 Historylinks Museum collaborated with the Woodland Trust providing images for inclusion in three short audio visual presentations, or ‘soundslides' on the human heritage of Ledmore and Migdale Woods. The three soundslides include one on the Canadian Forestry Corps stationed at Spinningdale during World War 2. This may be of particular interest to those who have viewed the Corps images on this website. Each 'soundslide', produced by volunteer interns, features beautiful photography and the voices of local people sharing their memories and knowledge of a particular theme. In 'The Canadian Forestry Corps', Blossom Gow and Hamish Matheson provide memories of the Corps. Two other soundslides are based on the theme of 'Worship in the Woods', with the Rev John Forbes, Rev Alexander Murray and Gavin Ross narrating an account of the Great Disruption of 1843 when local people broke away from the Established Church and held their church services in Migdale woods, and 'Carnegie Log Cabin', with Margaret Thomson, great grand-daughter of Andrew Carnegie searching Fairy Glen for the site of the family's log cabin. All three soundslides can be viewed on the Woodland Trust website (see link below)
